Manchester United are on the verge of finalising a €50m deal for Alex Sandro. Official confirmation of the switch could come in 'the next few days'. [La Stampa] #MUFC

Wonder if 'La Stampa' are reliable, anyone know? This is the consequences of no Ed002 lol.

Agree7 Disagree1

From what I’ve read it seems reliable. I looked back on other deals they’ve reported and they’ve been bang on especially with Juventus. Terrible not having Ed02 around. Might have to start trusting Sky sources lol.

16 May 2018 18:16:52
Looks like it’s going to happen which is great. He’s not been picked for the Brazil squad for the World Cup which is ridiculous. Yet England have Ashley young who will most probably be first choice. Says it all really! But without a World Cup we Sandro will be fresh and raring to go. Seems darmian will move the other way so good deal for both parties.

Thanks Dan, nice to have a fullback who can attack for a change.

16 May 2018 19:49:04
Will he be allowed to though?

16 May 2018 20:28:22
Should do beast, like he used Cole, Maicon, Marcelo etc.

16 May 2018 21:11:12
Give it a rest for a day at least, beast.

17 May 2018 08:32:29
Guys, here's a novel idea. Just wait and see :)

17 May 2018 08:33:25
Hey Beast, was wondering, do you open your party poppers directly into the bin?

17 May 2018 11:12:08
Come on beast mate that line from Rwwd must have made you laugh😂😂😂.

17 May 2018 11:19:51
La stampa are basically rehashing what castles said nothing new.

17 May 2018 13:28:51

Post of the day mate, I like it :)

17 May 2018 16:05:29
I was thinking the same to be fair. I'm just seeing all this positivity which is ignoring reality and feel compelled to keep showing you what hides behind the curtain.

It's like everyone vents during and moments after the game, then all is forgotten/ ignored because tomorrow is another day and it's back to relying on hope rather than fact.

Truth is we have a great attacking left back and have wasted him, but a nice shiny new signing will answer all the problems of course - just like Sanchez has!

Beast shaw is not a great attacking full back he hasn't played 6 games consecutively for 3 years. I think that's you living in hope because there is no evidence for years that he is a great attacking full back.
For every ying there is a yang. Lots of evidence that we are improving lots of evidence that the squad is short. But for anyone like yourself that only looks for negatives there are lots of them to find too.
As a fellow poster for years and enjoyed the Craic with you many a time I have to say that every time any posters finds anything positive to say about anything you just take a polar opinion looking for a negative no matter what it is.
The essence of supporting Any sporting team is hope i don't understand why you try to suck the hope out of any positive comment about the club in general. It's quite hard to read at times and you have often written that jose comes across as a miserable person you need to take a look In the mirror mate as your coming across twice as negative as jose ever will to most.
You have been 1 of the best contributors on this page for a few years but honestly when every post is just to knock any positive comment about anything like your trying to suck the life out of anything that might possibly be good.
As I said yesterday your entitled to your opinions and put them across really well at times. But Now your bias and negativity about the manger is crossing into nearly everything you post.
The other day you said we needed 2 new full backs and you have been saying it all season. Today we are linked strongly (not sure I believe it) to a left back and now after a season of calling for new full backs you are suddenly saying we have a great full back in shaw you have been on the shaw is a disgrace bus for a long time.
My point is I know you have said you want to replace shaw all season but now when its happening maybe, you try to turn it into a negative. It's a bid odd mate.

17 May 2018 16:48:24
Is he a great a attacking left back?

17 May 2018 16:51:08
Beast must be talking about Ashley Young.

17 May 2018 16:50:00
where is Ed2?

{Ed001's Note - everywhere.}

17 May 2018 17:15:50
Ken - I'm praising one of our current players - how is that being negative?

I'm saying the way we play isn't good enough which by itself is a 'negative' comment, but surely that means I have positive expectations of what we can and should be doing?

I'm full of praise for Martial. I always praise our CB's because let's face it playing for Utd it is very hard not to have a good game with the amount of cover they get.

I am full of praise for DDG, I want players like TFM to get a game. Which is positive.

There are many ways to skin a cat and I think we are skinning it the wrong way. It doesn;t mean everything is negative, I actually think Jose talks sense a lot of the time (and say so), but words are cheap and he may slag off things, but the next game the worst performers play, the style is identical and the learnings are not on view. It's hard to be positive when we play such terrible football and fail to improve on it. I try hard to be positive, but most people on here tend to be overly positive about things, 2+2=5 stuff, so when I call for realism, that is not to be totally negative, it's just to pull in the hype.

Ultimately if this rubbish is praised, then that becomes the new benchmark and that is very very dangerous - there has to be some people prepared to be shot down for the betterment of everyone - I'm happy to jump on that grenade for the squad because most people don't even realise the pin has been pulled!

I couldn't disagree with you more mate. I think your anti mou glasses are are tainting everything you see.
You are praising one of our current players now because a new lb is imminent apparently so why praise shaw now when you have been calling for a new lb all season? How many times have u called shaw a disgrace, unfit, poor, not putting in effort or words to that affect this season. Now we get linked to a lb remember a position you have repeatedly called out needs filling and your negative about it? . Why the change of heart?
If we get a new th again a position you want filling will valencia suddenly become a great attacking full back.
You say you tell the truth. So why did you want a new lb all season and now moan when (it might be) addressed?

17 May 2018 18:32:43
long time reader, seldom poster, but i got to agree on some points with beasty over here. jose talks a lot of sense, but i don't understand why some of the worst players are playing the next game. eg, smalling shouldve been benched a lonnng time ago with his silly mistakes and how uncalm he can be.
but i got to agree with kenny boy over here too. shaw hasn't played consequtive games to prove he's a great attackin full back, bcus to me, i think an attacking fullback should be consistent, and be able to track back 90+ mins, whereas shaw looks tired at the end of every match.

but overall, in terms of your views, both make good points, but i guess we are different people and will have different ways to support the club. some look for hope of postivety on the next match believing what the players and manager can doand some are looking into the past looking at players/ manager couldve done better. but at the end of the day, we still love and support the club.

so can we please jus hold each others hand and say. ”i love you”.

jk aside, lookin forward to our fa final guys!

Ken - I want a LB for sure, but only because this manager won't play Shaw - who has been perfectly fine whenever played. If he would just give Shaw a run of games then we could all see what the supposed problem is, but he plays him, Shaw upsets the apple cart by doing well and he then drops him I assume hoping he throws his toys out the pram.

I just think our problems will remain even if we sign a RB/ LB and 9 other players - because the major issue is the person telling those players how he wants them to play. So I am anti Jose because he is so important and in my eyes the only reason we are so poor to watch.

Let's move on anyway mate, long summer ahead and hopefully some good footy to enjoy.

Remember when the main issue was cm and all we had to do was buy pogba.
The main issue was creativity all we had to do was buy Sanchez.
Main issue was cb all we had to do was buy lindelof .

Beast makes some good points above the answer isn't always just buy a new shinny toy . which seems to be some fans main objective can u imagine if United got a transfer ban.

17 May 2018 19:04:25
No sweat pal. always good talking with you. Who do you fancy for wc?
Spain for me. sneaky ton on Denmark for the semi at 40./ 1 one of the crazy ones that come off every couple of years.

17 May 2018 21:11:21
Likewise mate.

I've got a bit on Belgium, I've been banging the drum for them for the past 6-7 years managed to get 16/ 1 I think a couple of years back, but the price hasn't moved much since. Was going to have a bet on the group qualifiers but it seems so obvious and the odds are so rubbish it isn't worth it, as you say there is always a sneaky one.

I think England may be the surprise team, I fancy S/ F at least.

17 May 2018 22:21:50
I'd love Southgate to do well. He has made some big calls. Stuck work a lot of the young players that have gone through him at under age. Picked players who he believes in and that can play in his system. He didn't pick shaw and France didn't pick martial. So jose not alone. 😂😂.
